Major storm could hit Muskoka and Parry Sound this afternoon
Snow mixed with rain is on the way to Muskoka and Parry Sound. An Alberta Clipper and a Texas Low are expected to merge today over the Great Lakes and intensify bringing warmer temperatures and high winds. Environment Canada says precipitation will start mostly as rain east of Lake Huron this afternoon then head east where it will hit colder air and drop snow over Central Ontario later this afternoon. Freezing rain or ice pellets are possible during the transition from rain to snow. Snow melt due to rain and rising temperatures will be a concern.
